Final Grade: A
If I gave this album any less of a grade, it would be against the music God's. It would be religiously irresponsible to grade this album anything other than "A," so that's what it's getting - a big, fat "A." Miles is a genius, but that is no surprise. Killin band with Coltrane on tenor sax, Bill Evans on Piano, Paul Chambers on bass, Jimmy Cobb on drums, and Julian Adderley on alto sax - all legends. The only problem I had listening to this album had nothing to do with the album itself, but the fact that I knew every one of these songs (just not all by name), so nothing was fresh. Doesn't change the fact that I had a great time listening to it!
